Help wanted

Techhub is run by volunteers.

Managing an instance like Techhub requires a lot of time. If you want to help us and make our lives easier, we need:
- Moderators, to help with reports. Right now we are focusing on diversity for this particular position
- Webmaster, to manage the Hub site (add more sections, maybe a blog, keep it updated)
- Graphic artists, to design a mascot and a logo for Techhub
- Others, if you think you have some skills that can help Techhub, please let us know
Note: All of these positions are volunteer (not remunerated). We might consider paying a lump sum for the mascot/logo.

You can apply using this form.

Any feedback and/or questions are welcomed at [email protected].

Support us

Techhub runs on donations and is not for profit.

Sorry donation are disabled for now, I will re-activate them when needed. So look back maybe next month.
The goal here is to pay for the instance costs and nothing more, right now if you look at the finance we are getting more donations than we have costs.
